ADGE 2505 Wetlands (Fall: 4 )
This course is intended for students interested in wetland environments. You will learn classification systems, origins, and natural processes of wetland environments. We will discuss wetlands across the globe, including boreal, temperate, and tropical climates. We investigate hydrology, soils, and vegetation and their relationship to ecosystem processes, societal values, and management. We examine human use, modification, exploitation, jurisdictional delineation, and management options, along with legal and political aspects of wetlands. This is a broad course, also encompassing forestry, coastal management, energy, climate change, agriculture, history, and ecosystem succession.
